Concept.png Poisoning Rdf-entity.pngRdf-icon.png
The administration of a poison, whether intentionally or accidentally.

Poisoning is the administration of a poison, whether intentionally or accidentally. It tends to be used on this website to refer to acute fatal events such as happened at Jonestown.

Acute v. chronic

Poisonings may be chronic, in which case lifetime exposure is important (for example to lead) or acute. They may be fatal or cause disability, or those affected may be able to make a complete recovery.

Pesticide“Acute pesticide poisoning occurs frequently in children worldwide, and subclinical pesticide toxicity is also widespread. Clinical data suggest that acute pesticide poisoning during childhood might lead to lasting neurobehavioural deficits. Highly toxic and bioaccumulative pesticides are now banned in high-income nations, but are still used in many low-income and middle-income countries... birth cohort studies provide new evidence that prenatal exposure to organophosphate pesticides can cause developmental neurotoxicity.”Philippe Grandjean
